As the world’s four largest emitters adjust their carbon reduction pledges to achieve net zero by 2050 (USA, EU), 2060 (China) and 2070 (India), they all have significant 2030 targets which must be hit if there’s to be hope of achieving the longer-term goals.
China: CO2 emissions peak before 2030
USA: 50% Reduction in U.S. Greenhouse Gas Pollution from 2005 Levels by 2030
EU: 2030 greenhouse gas emission reduction target, including emissions and removals, to at least 55% compared to 1990
India: 500 gigawatts (GW) of non-fossil electricity capacity, half of energy from renewables, a reduction of emissions by one billion tonnes and emissions intensity of the GDP by 45% by 2030
Are these 2030 targets achievable?
What regulatory levers are likely to be deployed (eg carbon taxes)?
What are the consequences for investors (positive and negative)?
